For example, the Electric Power Company of Serbia (EPS) plans to build a 50MW wind farm in Kostolac
, and it has already invited bids for the preparation of feasibility study for this investment.
Another energy company that is well-known to the people of Serbia - the Petroleum Industry of Serbia (NIS) - plans to build its own windmills
. Namely, the company plans to build the wind farm Plandiste that would comprise 34 windmills with a capacity of 102MW, in which NIS and its partners intend to invest EUR 160 million.
The media in Serbia write that the interest in building wind farms in Serbia has also been expressed by the U.S. giant General Electric
. At this company, the value of investment in 500MW wind farms in Dolovo and Kovacica is estimated at as many as EUR 1 billion
It is still unclear what will happen with one of the biggest announced projects in this field in Serbia. Namely, Continental Wind Serbia initiated an idea few years ago to build the wind farm Cibuk 1 near Kovin, in which hundreds of millions of euros were supposed to be invested. However, this company had a lot of difficulties acquiring the documentation
for this project, and the whole story even grew into a serious political affair few months ago.
Austria's Energic is in talks to build a wind farm
and biomass heating plant in Negotin, while France's IEL OIE Balkan Renewable Energy
announces the construction of EUR 70 million wind farm in Basaid
near Kikinda, with a capacity of about 50MW, while the construction of EUR 100 million wind farm with a total installed capacity of 35.45MW at Vrska Cuka near Zajecar
is announced by the Swiss company VP Energy System.
Construction of EUR 350 million Kovacica wind farm
is yet another plan presented to the public in Serbia. The investor is Belgrade-based affiliate of the Belgian firm Electrawinds K-Wind
. Interest in the Bela Anta location
in Dolovo near Pancevo has been expressed by the Welbury Bela Anta company.
